Relatives of Arijit Singh, 22, an Afghan Sikh from Kabul, who was kidnaped and killed by a group of kidnappers in Kabul said police had “neglected” in rescuing Singh from the abductors.
Singh’s body was found and buried by Kabul police at Kabul Municipality cemetery two months ago, but his family was informed this week.
“Why the municipality did not inform us? Sikh is known for his appearances and what he was wearing. Why we were not informed?” Singh’s mother asked.
Singh’s relatives said police were informed about his disappearance, but they buried the body.
“I don’t know why they buried the body that had no relative while they were informed about disappearance of Singh,” said Anarkali Hunaryar, a senator.
Nusrat Rahimi, a spokesman for Ministry of Interior Affairs, said they have arrested a couple in connection to the case.
“The anti-crime department of the Interior Ministry has arrested two main suspects who had kidnapped Arijit Singh from PD13. The killers are a wife and husband that one of them was arrested from PD13 and another was arrested from Baghlan province,” Nusrat Rahimi, spokesman of interior ministry said.
